at this time. i actually debated him on cnn and other channels back in '93 and '94. i know his position. it has never changed. what has changed in this country is the continued use of these weapons. when we had the first mass shooting in 1966/67, the texas bell tower, i thought this was an aberration, but it hasn't been, and the malls, theaters, businesses, law practices, and now the schools. for me, sandy hook was an epiphany. the woman who had guns, who kept them i assume in a respectable area. she also had a son and that son is quite possibly mentally disturbed. he got a very powerful weapon and he went out with that weapon and he killed 5 and 6 and 7-year-olds. i understand with 3 to 11 bullets in each of their bodies with a weapon that had the velocity to really rip these bodies apart. that should not be able to happen. this aisis a young man who kneww to use weapons. he chose to use them against the most defenseless. the question is does government have the obligation to protect those children? i believe we do. i believe we do. >> a quick question on this. i want to ask on a couple other
